Not Your Usual Closing

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with HomeRome Realty 410-530-2400 311291

 

 

It was a different kind of closing at the new house with the buyers, the closing notary, and the seller. I stopped by for less than a minute to drop off a check. The listing agent stayed in the car.

Everyone in masks and gloves carried on business and got the transaction done.

Closing this way certainly saves time, eliminates face to face contact, but is very impersonal. When available, I will always choose sitting at the settlement table with my clients and then sharing a meal afterward. 

Congratulations to the new first time homeowners.

Hoping they fill their new home with love and many happy memories.

Congratulations on a successful COVID-Closing. I'm about to find out what that is like, got my first listing of CA-COVID since March coming out in a couple weeks.

Any tips?

Morning Margaret.

Around my area, closings are still taking place.  Like your area, just not the same way as it was.  Sigh

Hello Margaret - congratulations on your recent real estate closing.  It is interesting to see how we are continuing to experience change(s) in various processes. Not just real estate but so many parts of life.  Everyday things as well as those that happen occasionally.  It's a part of life.  We learn.  We adapt.

Thomas J. Nelson, Realtor e-Pro, CRS, RCS-D, Vets  Stay in touch constantly. Don't assume the simple tasks are done. Review and review again. Too few people, too easy to overlook things we have always taken for granted. I'm sure your closing will be a smooth one.
